lift

Today…

it hit me.

Like, stopped-me-in-my-tracks,

took-my-breath-away,

hit me.


I get to spend every day of my life with my kids. 

Every single day. 

My waking to sleeping time, my sleeping to waking time… 


I get to see them 

discovering,

playing,

making,

laughing,

sharing,

connecting,

loving,

being.


How extraordinary.



Today, I realised

I've chosen a life  

(or it chose me?) 

that is 

the truest path 

I could have ever dreamed of.


I get to see my kids,

and other kids too, 

become their own unique and glorious selves.

I get to inspire and be inspired.

I get to write and read, think and create

and watch my children adore writing, reading, thinking, creating.

I get to hear ideas, and share ideas.

I get to laugh, love and be loved, 

confide and be confided in,

teach and be taught,

every single day of my life. 



I cherish this life. 




I am nourished by it.



I am dazzled.






I am lifted up

  1. I get that feeling too. Almost like losing your breath when you realize that these amazing things are not happening somewhere else with someone else, they are happening with you, to you. I look at the changes in my girls and the sons and daughters of my friends and I count my blessings every single day.

  5. Love this! I get this feeling too. Aren't we blessed and lucky? I love the way you expressed this.

    Watching "Waiting for Superman" last night I cried for the kids who aren't able to get a wonderful education that they deserve and I felt so incredibly lucky to be able to homeschool.
